for jobs for the american people. it has killed jobs. >> that was governor mitt romney wednesday night attacking the president on his administration's signature piece of legislatures, obamacare. so, mary, this is typically democratic turf. health care, where did romney score on that issue? >> well, i think he did two things very effectively. one was, remember when he first started running for president against, in the primary when john mccain was the candidate? he tended to like to talk about data, and we even joked how he was so focused on data. >> paul: right. >> this time around, mitt romney came out and talked about people he had met, a woman with a baby in her arms who told him how difficult it was, a couple that was not able to afford their health care. and you know, he, i think, made the points that he needed to make about the data, but he humanized them and i think that was a great achievement of his on debate. >> paul: health care distraction from job creation, you inherit a recession, a financial crisis, and instead of focusing on that, romney is saying, you spent two years t
on wednesday night. the question for paul ryan is can he protect in a way mitt romney's achievement and can he consolidate it and after the romney debate after the ryan debate in a sense can it confirm what romney did. i think it is a very important moment. vice president biden will try very hard to retrospecktively discredit mitt romney's victory. he will say maybe obama was off his game a little. he won't say that but implication. all lies, deception, flip flopping, big mirage that you saw for 90 minutes. biden is going to come incredibly hard at romney. ryan has to defend romney and in effect consolidate romney's gains. like coming in in the second leg of a relay race. your team is ahead and you got to hold the lead and got to, of course, attack the obama biden record but above all sort of consolidate what romney did in the first debate and not let biden undercut it. >> geraldo: so you think that joe biden has to do something the president did not. he has to take it to his opponent? >> he is totally going to do that. not to ryan but to romney. if i were biden i would take all 45 minutes of
governor romney had a strong night but in this section, on entitlements, he didn't necessarily look the best, and, it seemed to be the moment where he wasn't as sure of himself in the arguments as he was throughout the rest of the debate. he was very strong on tax policy, he was strong on on his economic policy, and, he used the $90 billion figure to great advantage, twice, he used it, against the president, on energy policy, and he used it against him on education policy. but, during the section on entitlements, he didn't necessarily seem to be at his strongest. but... certainly much stronger than the president. >> chris: i want to ask you about a moment you didn't bring up, that has gotten a lot of attention, let's take a look at this one. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs and stop other things. i like pbs and i love big bird and i like you, too but i will not keep spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. >> chris: now was that smart, as a way to show that he is serious about cutting spending or always a mistake to take on big bird?
't necessarily think -- you know, it is degrees of weakness and i think governor romney had a very strong night. section on sec hundred on entitlements he didn't necessarily look the best and seemed to be the moment where he wasn't as sure of himself on the arguments as he was on the rest of the debate. he was very strong on tax policy and economic policy and used that $90 billion figure to a great advantage twice. useused it against the presidet on energy policy and used it against them on education policy. but during the section on he entitlements he didn't necessarily seem to be at his strongest but still certainly much stronger than the president. >> chris: i want to ask you about a moment that you didn't bring up that has got and lot of attention. let's take a look at this one. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs and other things. i love big bird and i actually like you, too. i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for are it. >> was that smart as a way to show that he is serious about cutting spend or is it always a mistake t
and that became the overwhelming narrative. >> no question this was mitt romney's night on style. >> it looked lielg romney wanted to be there and obama didn't want to be there. >> the challenger, mitt romney seemed more presidential than the president, more in command of miss facts, gums, principles. >> that was the frustration wrchl was the president tonight. >> the other media exaggerating the extent of the president's loss and ignoring the candidate's half truths in the process. fox news hypes the conservative website video of barack obama as a rashlgly charged revelation. >> on the eve of the first prez denl chal debate the first bomb is about to d dropped for the 2012 presidential white house. >> it was covered at the time. a right wing commentators trying to portray their president as an angry black man. plus the other big debate, jon stewart versus bill o'reilly. >> income redistribution. do you believe in it? >> do you? >> no. i asked first. >> it's a complicated one. i believe in social security. do you? >> yes, absolutely. >> so we're both socialists. >> no, no. >> was this clash of
and economists have said that mitt romney has embraced for 18 months, until wednesday night, that he has a $5 trillion tax cut plan, skewed toward the wealthy and he has no details in terms of deductions or anything like that. and the independent experts that have lookad it say you have to increase taxes on the middle class to get to that 20% rate cut and $5 trillion that are skewed toward the wealthy. an average middle class family would see an average of $2,000 increase. there is no running away from that. a different mitt romney was breathtakingly dishonest on that stage. >> shannon: congresswoman, is it fair to say that there are going to be $5 trillion in cuts, even if you want to concede the point, even though sevny cutter stipulates that that is not true that, it would be a $5 trillion cut. it's only part of the story because, of course, there will be other revenue suggestions and way to make up the revenue. how do you respond? >> well, we have no idea. look, shannon, i said as a member of the budget commit. i am a former member of the appropriations committee. chairman priebeus, i am
gaining ground and his crowds have picked up and last night in florida, romney opened up telling about his last visit with an old friend paralyzed in a tragic accident. >> they pushed his wheelchair forward and he came up and i reached over and put my arm on his shoulder and i whispered into his ear and i said, billy, i love you and god bless you. i got a call from a friend that he died the next day after that visit. it's rare that you get the chance to tell someone how much you love them when you still can. >> can romney keep gaining ground or will president obama maintain his advantage in those battleground states that matter most? we'll look at the race from all angles this morning and begin with the campaign's ed gillespie and robert gibbs for barack obama and, robert, let me begin with you. how much difference did governor romney make wednesday night. >> look, i think governor romney had a master theatrical performance just this past week but the underpinnings and foundation of that performance were fundamentally dishonest. look, he walked away from the central tenet of his economic t
there all night. romney supporters. they wanted to talk about this and gloat all night. >> belva: some critics said the president spent so much time stating what romney believes but never told as much as he should have about what he believes. >> sure, almost like too much of the nice guy. he was saying, governor romney and i agree on this. and he -- you wanted to paint differences. if you are running for the highest office in the land, you want to say how you are different from your opponent and the president didn't do a good job of differentiating himself. romney did. in the theatrics of the debate, he was very pointed. he was concise. and something he hasn't been throughout the campaign. >> belva: he'll be here on what day? the president. >> monday, grabbing cash. he'll be having a semipublic event. >> belva: and the v.p. debate is? >> thursday. that's must-see tv. that's going to be chaotic television. set the dvr now. >> belva: okay. that's what's happening at the top of the ticket. we'll move to those areas down where there's lots of action, as the democrats try to take back the h
bring that up because the very next night when he was on fox, romney himself brought it up, or at least talked about it. here's what he said. >> in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question-and-answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case i said something that's just completely wrong. >> schieffer: so he said-- what does that mean? >> that was astonishing for a whole number of reasons. the first was three weeks ago he was asked the same question and he stood by the essence of what he said. but when you look at that tape that was behind closed doors, it wasn't just a comment. it wasn't just a word. it was a whole exposition. afs an and a on how 47% of the country were shiftless, people who wouldn't take personal responsibility for themselves. he slammed half the country and to say, whoops, i misspoke, is a little unconvincing. as i watched that tape and i waw of watched the debate it reminded me of burns-- all you need in show business is sincerity and if you can fake that, you've got it made." that's what
. that's why we saw that new slit version of the romney-bot on wednesday night. this romneybot, they worked on him in the factory for hours. >> oh, lord, cynthia. >> making sure he had the right smile, making sure he seemed warm and sincere. well, who was that guy? >> i think he was -- >> this is not a guy we've seen on the campaign trail for the last -- >> i can't take any of this seriously. >> -- for the last several months. >> i think first off the whole idea that this guy is an empty suit is laughable to say that, number one. he was the governor of a state and was successful. he was able to cobble together the coalition, something this president hasn't been able to do quite frankly to get his agenda done. >> why does he keep saying -- this one gets to me. i don't like the word lie. i think he's dealing an untruth here. he did it the other night after being corrected by his staff on one of the sunday shows. he said that his health care plan, such as it's going to be, will cover people who don't have coverage for pre-existing conditions and they try to buy a policy and he kee
a particularly good night. did he have had v a good night or was the president off? i think mitt romney had a great night and the president was off. what happened? >> i think both. i think mitt came prepared. mitt was on fire. all he had to do and think about was this debate. and the president was flat. i don't know what else was on his mind, it could have been his anniversary, what is going on in syria and turkey, because he is busy running a country while running for re-election. i don't know what the problem was, but you're right, he stunk it up. i'm sure at this point he knows he stunk it up. i think it was a five-point swing since the debate. so now he went from being up 20 heading into the fourth, now he's in overtime and has to pull it together. he was going into it way ahead. >> you know we are nonpartisan and not about talking points, why does every single liberal say no one called out mitt romney's lies? i get responses here, why don't you guys call out mitt romney's lies? the middle of the debate, it is not up to the media nor the moderator to call out lies. it is up to the presi
romney had. governor rom he in a good night. he didn't have a big moment that becomes a sound bite and affects how people look back on the debate. but this was a strong performance by governor romney. he needed one. i think he got it. >> joe? >> i think romney did himself a lot of good tonight. he was there on the issues. he knew his stuff. he didn't back down to the president or the moderator. and he didn't -- he didn't cross the line because you can do that and i think that would have backfired on him. i watched obama debate a lot in primaries when i was with edwards and clinton and john ed wards. this is the guy who showed up. he's a good debeirut. but he doesn't enjoy. it you look at this. romney looked like -- i am here, this is great, i am having fun. he really did. and obama looked sort of sour and like it was another headache to have to be there. that won't help. the question here, rom flow's supporters needed to be reinvigorated. he definitely got that out of tonight. what did happen with the undecided? did women move? you know, is that enthusiasm going to spread out and s
that the race is tightening, and romney got one of his biggest crowds ever last night in a state he really has to win. [ cheers ] >> that was a florida welcome. thank you so much. >> reporter: one of mitt romney's biggest crowds ever, more than 6,000 supporters near orlando in a state he needs to win. >> we're going to overcome the challenges we have. i'm counting on florida to win this for me on november 6th. >> yes. >> reporter: the crowd energized about the candidate's chances after that first debate. >> when it came to jobs and the economy, he doesn't really have anything to add to what he's been doing over the last four years. i don't think we could afford four more years like the last four years. >> reporter: even though there is less than a month to election day, both candidates are doing more than just pressing the flesh. they're still raising money. tonight in los angeles mr. obama will be joined by bill clinton at a fund-raiser, and the president continues to shatter records. he's nearly doubled the number of fund-raisers george bush held and has dwarfed his other predecessors. it's
perry, and tuesday, campaigning in ohio, meanwhile, mitt romney had a rally last night in florida and stays in florida for a second day, more campaign events later in that swing state. >> yeah, i think you left out george clooney, because for some, that is a headliner, just saying, as well. thank you. >>> as mike said, mitt romney is in the sunshine state. t nominee there for a second day. and a good sunday to you, peter, how is mitt romney coming off to the crowd there is? >> mitt romney prepares to head out to another swing state, boarding the plane with his wife, ann, last night trying to put an emphasis on the state of florida, which they think will be a significant path. the new sense of confidence has been within the campaign, enthusiasm among the crowds, particularly trying to counter the attacks, trying to cast mitt romney as an out-of-touch executive. usually he sort of out sources that opportunity to speak about himself to others. now he is speaking about his own life story, and here is one story about an old friend of his who was disabled. >> he stayed active, active in
. >> mitt romney told shawn hammett the last night that that was a bad mistake, that 47% thing. he says he was sorry. >> i never said this on television, but nina is right. she stumbled on the truth when she said that obama is not a good debater. it is not that obama was off his game, that is his game. if he does not have a prompter, he is not good. you see it in his press conferences where he does not have a prompter. he has never been good at conferences. he rambles. the press has been unimpressed with what he does. he can decide how long he wants to take for an answer. this is who he is. it is going to be at a town hall the next one. he has more ability to connect with an audience than romney, so he will have an advantage in the second debate that he did not have been the first. >> would you rather be good or lucky? 7.8% unemployment rate. that is pretty good news. >> unless you actually look at the numbers. if you look at those getting new jobs, aut 114,000. the need to have 150 to stay at the same rate. what has been happening is you have people leaving the work force, retiring, or --
into wednesday night, people had not answered that second question. romney had not made the sale. i think what you saw wednesday night was the first opportunity that the average person had to see these two candidates head-to-head for an extended period of time, and when they saw that, guess who won? romney won. he was confident in that plan. the president was in a situation where he couldn't defend the last four years. maybe that's not because he is not a good debater. we know he is a good debater. he couldn't defend the last four years because you can't defend it. you can't defend not getting the job done. i think that's -- this has changed. yesterday's one last thing, candy. yesterday we had 150,000 doors being knocked on in ohio. we have great energy. the governor is going to win the state. it's going to be close. he is going to win. >> governor strickland, without sort of getting into more debate performance and how the president did or didn't do, do you think that mitt romney perceived as the winner by a large margin picks up steam now in ohio that you all have to push up against? >> well
: was that the wednesday night massacre or what? did mitt romney catch up and pass obama in one 90-minute performance? will the strong new jobs report help the president to take command? leading from behind? was there some hidden unknown logic to the president's decision to let his challenger wing his way from one position to another? why didn't barack obama force romney to own his record against the auto rescue and against the 47% and against showing his personal taxes. was there a reason obama didn't want 70 million people to know his best case? finally, rematch. will the town hall format of the next debate give barack obama a chance to show greater empathy. and will mitt romney be just as good when people ask the questions? hi, i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today, abc's sam donaldson, nbc's andrea mitchell, msnbc s.e. cupp and joe klein. the new jobs report gives the obama campaign a much-needed assist after the debacle wednesday night in denver. the debate's closing statements told the tale. the president was down and mitt romney was up. >> you know, four years ago we were goin
romney we saw on wednesday night, we have to see it again and again and again. and his campaign, greg, needs to make us see him. we are a little stressed in analyzing this race that since thursday morning they are not capitalizing well enough. their tv ads are not running clips from the debate highlighting the great performance. it is not on the ads. >> it has changed a little bit. i want to ask you about the performants because people say well, that was not really president obama, he was off the game. if you actually watch president obama without a teleprompter in news conferences, he fumbles, stumbles and mumbles, he goes on and on like a recovery and he never answered the question. >> that is true. he did not draw a clear distinction between him record and the positions that governor romney has taken. john is right, he did not make the kind of charges he has made successfully about cutting medicare and medicaid, social security. the bottom line, romney was able to move to the center, obama fell apart, i think, even worse than you are saying. he looked like he was not up to the job.
celebrating his wedding anniversary, as you know fell on the night of the debate. so mitt romney was unencumbered on the campaign trail. there was no response that the president could give to anything that mitt romney did. and mitt romney seemed to energize after the debate. >> every year the median income has gone down, 4,300 a family ab with average family income around 50,000 bucks, that hurts. gasoline prices are up twice what they used to be. these are tough years for the middle class and for the poor in america. and if we calculate it, by the way, our unemployment rate in a way that was consistent with the way it was calculated when he came into office, be a different number. if the number of people shall the percentage of the american population in the work force were the same today as the day he was elected, unemployment rate would be above 11%, this is inexcusable in a nation so prosperous of ours, that four years of a presidency has not been able to get america back on track. he can't, he doesn't know now, i know now and i'll get the job done. >> a bet that most of the
high, romney reminded a rally last night with fireworks and trace adkins that the president promised his stimulus gets unemployment lower than it is. >> he said right now, we would be at 5.4 #% unemployment. >> romney pounded biden for stating the administration's goal yesterday of a trillion dollar tax hike on those earning more than 200,000 or $250,000. >> they have been squeezed and buried. >> he did not talk about the 47% who don't pay income taxes expect a handout. he renounced the statement last night once and for all. >> completely wrong, and i absolutely believe my life has shown i care about 100%. >> they hope the remarks put the matter behind him, but to prevent that, democrats spent today announcing new talking points to keep it alive. lou? lou: thank you very much. carl cameron, chief political correspondent. joining us for more on this final month before the election and what changed since the debate, carl rove joins us, the head of the american cross roads, former adviser to president bush. good to have you here. start with, first of all, that pempsz. you and i have not
today that went down saturday night, they're not talking about president obama, governor romney, or even "saturday night live." they are talking about fox news host bill o'reilly and the daily show host john stewart. both men went at it and left no subject off the table during debate they billed as the rumble in the air conditioned auditorium at george washington university in d.c. >> fox news is sort of the lupus of news. they are -- they have seen something. it is there with a -- and fox news has gone overboard. >> well, hey -- [ applause ] >> fnc is making a billion dollars a year so something is -- >> you can't make money selling -- >> if you missed it last night, you can watch it on-line at the rumble 2012.com. >>> romney's foreign policy speech. afghanistan, israel, iran. which issue will romney focus on and which one gives him more ammunition against president obama? we'll take a look. jack, you're a little boring. boring. boring. [ jack ] after lauren broke up with me, i went to the citi private pass page and decided to be...not boring. that's how i met marilyn... giada... really
, of course, he spent that night debating romney. they got away to the four seasons hotel to celebrate, the anniversary, not at the debate. romney has been reaching out to voters in the crucial swing state this weekend. a lot of the talk has been centered on taxes and health care but he's also taken time to talk about his sin expirations and the people he's met on the campaign trail. >> i met someone named jane horton. she also suffered tragedy in her life. her husband christopher was killed in afghanistan as she was packing up a care package when a knock came at the door that he was tragically killed there. what did she do? she didn't fall into sadness and despair, but instead went to work to help other families that had lost loved ones and served our nation. she went to the funeral for her husband when his remains came back and this was at a time when misguided people were protested funeral services of our servicemen and she was asked, what do you think about these people protesting people at your husband's people. she said, quote, chris died for them to be able to protest. this is q
to go to the finish line. momentum off his debate's success, mitt romney kept the heat on the president last night in florida. >> he said, you know, you can't fix washington from the inside. you can only fix it from the outside. we'll give him that chance on november. >> reporter: the romney campaign says it's taken in $12 million in campaign cash. while the obama campaign reported a record monthly haul, $181 million in september, tops for either campaign this year. in his weekly address the president touted another september number, the unexpected drop in the jobless rate. >> friday we learned the unemployment rate is at its lowest level since i took office. more americans are entering the workforce. more americans are getting jobs. >> reporter: and in case you like your politics a bit more tongue-in-cheek -- >> that is how you are preparing, prepping for the rumble with chicken? >> that's right. >> reporter: two tv warriors squared off in their own rhetorical throwdown. john stewart left leading host of "the daily show" and took on bill o'reilly, the conservative host of fox, and what
the debate the other night and believing again perhaps that mitt romney has the chance to do it, i would agree that that will help his fund raising and sorry to say, ben, the money does matter. it matters in our-- >> well, i will tell you, adam, some of romney's big fundraisers particularly in new york, complained that he was fun raising it too much and not take it go to the president. scary thing about the debate and great and wonderful thing for america, what's scary about it, it exposed the man likely to be reelected to be someone so out to lunch when it comes to the economy, i'm scared about the next four years, when you don't have basic command of facts and you're the president of the united states, whoa, that's a big problem. >> does that fear that a lot of people may share what charlie translate to people, saying, you know what i'm going to pour the money into mitt romney. >> i'm not convinced just not convinced. i think he was really appealing, if you were on the sidelines and in the middle you may be persuaded and i think that he pushed back, you know, the people most critical o
